if you stop an economy growing, it will be of more out of work claiming benefits, not paying taxes. businesses struggles that they are not paying taxes. and as a result, borrowing goes out. our income not to invest in schools and transport and education, but are we to keep people idle so the next time you hear a conservative say to you, labor would increase borrowing. just remember it is this government that is increasing borrowing this year. [applause] so what have we seen? we have seen recessions, higher unemployment, higher borrowing. i don't think that is what people were promised. there will be some people who say, and this is an important argument. it will be some people who say they were short-term pain, but it is worth it for the long term gain. and i'm afraid the opposite is true. the longer you have low growth in the country, the baker to debt comes to the future and the bigger problems will be in the future. the longer a young person is out of work, that's not just bad for the prospects now. it is bad for their prospects for the whole of the rest of their lives. and it's
decisions away from a melted up in the american economy. if we get a decision on the grand bargain, the kind of ten year time frame we would manage the cut and spending and tax increases and in investments, we need do all three. we need to tax, cut, and invest in the source of our strength. i think that would have a huge effect. i think americans today feel in many ways like children of two divorced parents. i think it's a pal in the country in a lot of ways. it would be huge. if we got a grand bargain on energy how to exploit the boundary of -- i think the two together would have a huge impact. so the question is how close are we to that? and, you know, i have a saying about the middle east which applies to the american politics. all important politics happens the morning after the morning after. >> when is that? >> here i'm talking about the election. here i think the question really is i don't know how the election is going come out. i make no prediction. i ask myself if romney gets smashed, if he gets smashed, it would -- i happen to think the political problem in the country we have a c
sure we get there and one of the most recent things was i created a director of the creative economy in the city to focus on tourism. somebody gets up every morning thinking about how we can connect arab manufacturing for example to design new -- as we seek to embrace an economy in the city and my a lot of folks on the council had have no idea what it meant. we really had to educate folks about what that meant and we ended up getting 11 of our counselors to vote in favor of that. in january my third week, i city solicitor who i appointed with confirmation was up for a vote from the city council and what i did on facebook was tomorrow night my solicitor candidate that i appointed will be interviewed and they will take about tomorrow night. can you please shut the meeting and speak in her favor and we got her friends there and her family there and people who didn't know her but supported me so when you pass a city council people are scared to vote against the folks who show up. it has become less about whether you agree or disagree by wanting to appease the people who are showing up. f
because he was better on the economy. but i actually think to change the election into an election about leadership, and now is where people voted for barack obama. they voted on his leadership and not who would better manage the economy. if you saw john mccain and not moment, he suspended his campaign. he went to washington insider candidate should come within. went back to the campaign trail, was going to be the debate. there's a lot of lurching going on with john mccain at that point. our candidate number one from the campaign trail. he stayed for a midair. he positioned his leadership of the people, with the neighborhoods. john mccain was the voice echoing from the halls of washington. that was the contrast of favorite our candidate. and then to the last point i want to make, which is mind your ceo makes. when john mccain, for example, said i'm going to -- we should put the debate and focus on the bill. our cannadaycannaday's response was less than come i can run a campaign. i can do the debate. i can do more than this. i've got an organization that can handle a lot. i'll be ready fo
obama's view of how we fix our economy. much more in line with main strewn americans believe, the middle class believes. the things that president clinton used, balanced approach. opportunity and, i thought that governor romney really didn't do anything to dissuade the general public from the view that he would like to go back to the days of the bush tax cuts for the wealthy and hope that this time, instead of growing deficits, and growing unemployment, that it grows jobs. so governor romney really needed a game changer tonight. i hate to say this but i find myself agreeing with chris christie. governor romney really needed to turn the world upside down. he really need ad game changer tonight. i think you would be sore pressed to find that magic moment that was the game-changer tonight. and, so, that was my view in watching it anyway. i also thought the president did a very good job finally nailing governor romney down to admitting he does want to turn medicare into a voucher program. i thought the president pushed back on that very effectively, when he said, hey, if you're 55 you might
